September 7, 2016

The latest issue of Canadian Yachting is now available for you to view!

“Waypoints Winter Cruising” is the theme and the timing is perfect for you to plan and book that “bucket list” Winter charter cruise for 2017!

The feature story is the “Millennials Charter” where a whole group of successful millennial generation sailors and racers head to the British Virgin Islands for an unforgettable Footloose catamaran cruise!

Next, life-long international cruising couple Sheryl and Paul Shard share their experiences about the easy-cruising destination of St. Martin and how they first learned to cruise. Their article focuses on how you can get started cruising and they offer lots of valuable suggestions based on their years of experience. The Shards are the stars of the Distant Shores TV show and are originally from Ontario.

The Informed Boater, Rob MacLeod, continues his three-part series, Confident Sailor / Reluctant Sailor, by sharing his experiences with onboard power needs and power management while maintaining harmony with his mate.

Also in the October issue, Robin Ball reviews the exciting new Beneteau Oceanis 35, John Armstrong and Andy Adams review the super versatile and clever Swift 30 for those who want to cruise efficiently but under power, and Katherine Stone takes us on a visit to the Nanaimo Yacht Club.

All this and more in the October 2016 Canadian Yachting magazine!
